Welington Castillo (C, CHC) - Waiver Wire Analysis

The Mechanic - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two Catcher Leagues

ANALYSIS: Only 5% owned in Yahoo! leagues, Castillo will be available in a handful of 2 catcher leagues. He is benefitting from a little BABIP luck, but he's shown in the past that he can hover around .340 which means a .270 BA is attainable.  He has been racking up the hits recently, with 15 over his last 10 games, raising his BA from .234 to .300. Castillo also has 4 HR and 6 2B over 80 AB so it's not out of reach for him to finish with ~16 HR and ~25 2B over 400 total AB.  Those would be very respectable numbers from your 2nd catcher slot. If you're waiting for Posey, Mauer, Rosario or McCann to heat up, Castillo can be a nice fill in while he's hot.
